Here is a great looking John Packer JP251SWST Bb Trumpet in satin finish. The condition is pretty good, with a couple tiny spots of lacquer loss and relacquering. The first valve saddle was taken off by the previous owner. We could find one an reinstall if you would like to have it back on! The valves are tight and smooth, and it sure plays superbly! This is a great trumpet for everyone and we do mean it! You can be an amateur, student or gigging professional and this horn will fit right in! The trumpet features a .459 ML bore, 4.84" yellow brass bell and leadpipe designed by Smith-Watkins!
Here are some information from John Packer website:
A perfect balance of high level performance at an attractive price, the JP251SW is a popular choice for schools and students and has been designed for the developing player to tackle the mid-to-late grade exams. The JP251SW is also no stranger to the professional market and is used frequently on stage in professional settings, from Jools Holland's Rhythm and Blues Orchestra to various shows in London's West End.
The JP251SW has been carefully designed in collaboration with Dr Richard Smith of Smith-Watkins to ensure the instrument benefits from the same attention to detail as Smith-Watkins instruments.
The excellent articulation and sound projection stem from the exclusively designed Smith-Watkins leadpipe which sets the JP251SW apart from other intermediate level trumpets.
